Lyndhurst Martial Arts Academy Pride Tournament results
Savarese BJJ Academy, a Lyndhurst Martial arts Academy’s Pride Tournament results were outstanding. Professor Chris Savarese’s team had a great showing at the Pride Tournament in NYC yesterday. Pride is a really tough and well run tournament.
Congrats to “The Beast” Sean Yadimarco on winning his bluebelt division, continuing a fantastic run over the last 2 years. He has been men’s divisions at only 16 and 17 yrs old since last year. Furthermore, Babatunde Ojo had his best day of competing yet, finishing 2nd in his bluebelt division and 3rd in the Absolute division (no weight limit). Those results came on the heels of having a bad day at his last tournament. Savarese told him his day was coming because Ojo has been awesome in the training room for the past couple of months. Congrats to Ojo for staying mentally strong and learning from defeat like we are supposed to. The entire Academy is so proud of you. Also on the top of the podium was our little man Damien Moreria, winning his yellowbelt division. Love this kid, Damien is the smallest kid in the training room every night and never complains, he just trains. We knew he would be a special kid years ago when he would come to class early before everyone and do agility drills with the cones before class.
Congrats to Brian Procel and Corey Peirone for stepping up and testing themselves as well. Sorry to Ariana and Kayla Zeppetelli for having no one in your divisions but we’ll jump right in to another soon.
Kids shine too!
Also congrats to both Tiankees, Leo and Lorenzo, for taking 1st place in their kids divisions. They were the only 2 kids to step up on the kids team for this tournament.
